Myrna was my sister-in-law, but more of a sister to me. She always kept a beautiful home and garden with my brother Freddie's and their son Mark's help. As we have grown older we didn't see each other as often as I have liked, but always were glad to be with each other when we could. My thoughts and prayers are with Mark, Donna, Devin and Derek as they are mourning Myrna. She has to be in heaven happily reunited with Freddie and her mom and dad! I will miss her!
